Can you gain weight from eating too little?

Thermodynamics don’t lie!

Thermodynamics is a way to express how energy is used and changed. Put simply, we take in energy in the form of food, and we expend energy through activities such as:

Basic metabolic functions (breathing, circulating blood, etc.) movement (daily-life activity, purposeful exercise, etc.) producing heat (also called thermogenesis) digestion and exercise.

I cover the topic in a video which will soon be release on Youtube.

The truth is......

Energy balance (calories in, calories out) does determine bodyweight.

If we absorb more energy than we expend, we gain weight. If we absorb less energy than we expend, we lose weight.

This has been tested over and over again.

It’s as close as we can get to scientific fact.

What is your idea of “eating too little?"

Do you mean…

Eating less than normal?

Eating less than you’ve been told to eat?

Eating less than feels right?

Eating less than you need to be healthy?

Are you…

Eating too little at one meal?

Eating too little on one day?

Eating too little every day?

Eating too little almost every day but too much on some days?
